Top 10 Movies that Have Least Stood the Test of Time

Movies that were good at one point but now aren't so great anymore.
The Top Ten
1 The Blair Witch Project

The reason it was a hit when it was released was because it was marketed very well. They made people believe it was all true. The reason it sucks now is because it just looks like crap, with over the top acting, and looks like it was filmed in someone's backyard.

While it may have been a hit when it was released, it hasn't held up in recent years.

Yeah, I agree. It seemed scary at first, but now it's just really cheesy and dumb.

2 Tron

Special effects were revolutionary. Were. When you really break down the story and characters, Tron is a pretty average flick.

Not that great of a movie. It's no wonder so many people have forgotten about it.

3 Red Dawn (1984)
4 Robocop

This movie is just so violent. Lots of people get shot and blown up, there's blood everywhere, and it's all just not fun. Like, there's this one scene where Alex (before he became RoboCop) gets gunned down a lot and it's really grim, it's really nasty. I mean, how's that entertaining? How can I watch a man being shot multiple times? But if you people love this movie, then power to you. I don't mind if you do. Enjoy what you enjoy.

While it was good at its time, now it's just cheesy and corny. Especially the effects on ED-209 (you can tell they're stop-motion effects).

5 Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
6 The Sword in the Stone

Disney's weakest movie. The film relies too much on one joke after the other, and Merlin comes off as a complete bumbler.

7 2001: A Space Odyssey

It seemed visually interesting when it came out. Now everyone hates it because it's so slow-paced.

8 American Beauty
9 Short Circuit

I don't think anyone remembers this movie.

10 Howard the Duck

How did anyone like this film when it first came out? I thought it was a disaster of a movie. Right down from bare naked duck breasts and an almost sex scene with a woman and a duck, to it being marketed for kids. What kind of method was George Lucas smoking during the production of this turkey?!

Can you believe it took six actors to play Howard? Howard still looks unconvincing to this day.

The Contenders
11 Billy Madison

I used to think it was funny back then. Now I'm like, "Wow, what the holy did I see in this movie back then? This is one of the worst movies I've ever seen in my whole entire life!" I literally feel dumber from watching it. I mean, how can you like this?!

This movie was never even good to start with!

It's over-the-top, lame, and stupid.

12 Clash of the Titans (1981)
13 Titanic

A huge hit that seems weak in retrospect.

14 Hercules (1997)

This is still great. Just extremely underrated.

15 The Evil Dead (1981)

Aged really badly. Boring with no gore.

16 Independence Day
17 The Matrix
18 Batman
19 How Green Was My Valley

Wow, how did this beat "Citizen Kane" for Best Picture? No words... no words.

20 No Holds Barred
21 Critters
22 Free Willy

When they tried that in real life, the poor whale couldn't reintegrate into the wild and couldn't survive.

23 It (1990)
24 The Last House on the Left (1972)
